Our team of Matching Specialists collaborate to find a waiting Little suited to your personality, preferences and interests. If there is a suitable Little available we will arrange for you to meet their parents/guardians. You and the parents/guardians are given time to consider the quality of the match…
An introduction takes place at your Little’s home with their parents/guardians present. This is the first time you will meet your Little in person and plan your first fantastic adventure together.
Being a Big Couple is one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you'll ever do. You'll have the opportunity to help shape a child's life and future for the better by empowering him/her to achieve success. And the best part is, you'll have fun doing it.
You and your Little will share the kinds of activities you already enjoy, like playing sports, hiking, reading books, eating pizza, going to a movie... you name it. You will also be there to offer support, inspiration and advice. There's no doubt that whatever you do you'll enjoy it more with your Little Brother or Little Sister by your side.
